The City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) is bringingSpontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good to Chicago for its first U.S. appearance. The exhibition—the official U.S. presentation at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale (2012)—will be installed in the ground-floor Michigan Avenue Galleries of the Chicago Cultural Center from Memorial Day (May 24) to Labor Day (September 1).

Spontaneous Interventions, organized by Cathy Lang Ho on behalf of the New York nonprofit Institute for Urban Design, is devoted to the growing movement of architects, designers, artists, and everyday citizens acting on their own initiative to bring improvements to the urban realm, creating new opportunities and amenities for the public. The exhibition received over 178,000 visitors in Venice, and earned a Special Mention from the Golden Lion jury, the first time the United States has been honored in the history of the Venice Architecture Biennale.
